​Telestream Unveil Episode 7 at IBC

What separates Episode from the competition is its ability to scale and spread the transcoding workload automatically among multiple workstations regardless if they are Mac or PC. Version 7 of Telestream’s encoding software is on show at IBC.

Scheduled for release in early Q4 2015 in three versions (Episode, Episode Pro, and Episode Engine), the software brings bigger performance gains with native 64-bit support, better memory allocation for large jobs, added format support, and easier to use features.

“With 64-bit performance, Episode 7 is faster than ever,” said Barbara DeHart, vp of Desktop Business at Telestream. “As the volume and complexity of content grows, the ability to intelligently spread the workload across multiple Mac and Windows CPU cores becomes increasingly important when meeting tight deadlines.”

New features in Episode 7 include: Support for 4K include R3D ingest and HEVC presets; encoding/transcoding support for JPEG2000, DNxHD and DnxHR; updated Episode plug-in for Adobe Premiere Pro and Audio Channel Configurator enabling mapping to standard input/output formats or customized audio channel layouts.
